Building a Bike-Friendly Community

Setting Our Focus for the Coming Year

Posted by Steve Reiter on September 12, 2015

Our September BikeCNY meeting is scheduled for this coming Tuesday, September 15th, at 5:45 in the upstairs meeting room at Beauchamp Library.  Beauchamp is on E. Colvin Street at the corner of S. Salina.
As a group whose purpose is to advocate for improvements in cycling infrastructure, we see much work to do. The focus of this meeting is to prioritize our activities and set goals for the coming months and, possibly, years. Some of the issues before us are–

  • more bicycle infrastructure, including bike lanes for Euclid, connecting existing bike infrastructure, Creek Walk phase 2, Canal Trails
  • increased safety through better infrastructure, such as adding bike boxes, bike traffic lights
  • education of bicyclists and other road users, including news editorials, bike rodeos, bicycle commuter training
  • Bike Month 2016 events
  • be an advisory committee to the new city transportation planner and DPW/traffic planning
  • assist the city in applying for Bike Friendly City status
  • collaborate with other groups who are promoting bike safety, bike infrastructure, etc.

You may have other ideas. Please join us to share your thoughts and concerns.
